That's just good planning on the pants.

What bullet are you using doc? And how fast?

Which 6.5 Scenar do you guys prefer?

Seems most use 139?

Very nice pictures in this thread! Scenar is supposed to be a target shooting bullet but it seems that it is also effective on game. I have not used Scenar bullets but I have started to use Lapua Naturalis which is their line of lead-free hunting bullets.

I created a thread in the reloading forum for it and asked for members to share their experience:

Here's my first Elk - in fact an Asian 'Maral' from Kazakhstan.
Shot with a 139gr Scenar from my 6.5 Creedmoor at ~590 yards.
The bullet went through the back of the heart and exited. The animal went 20 yards and collapsed.

As you can see he broke a top off falling about 150 yards down the hill (but I've got the pieces!).

Very Nice!

Please elaborate on the details of your hunt.

Anthony,

Great write up, awe inspiring pictures - thanks for the link!

Two Questions:

1) What did you do with the meat? Were you able to bring any home? That would seem to be the only downside to a trip like that, bringing meat home could be potentially very expensive if allowed.


2) What made you pursue a hunting trip there? Perhaps work related, oil & gas industry?

Thanks - it was a wonderful experience.

To answer your questions:
1) We butchered all the meat on-site, bagged it up and took it back to camp, where we ate quite a bit, and the rest went to the guides' families.

2) Kazakhstan has become quite a major hunting destination, as it has vast areas of wilderness and a pretty effective wildlife programme. There are a number of international outfitters operating there, with the main trophies being Asiatic Elk (Maral) and Ibex, but also some sheep and bear hunting.
My personal reason for going was a hunting trip to the Altai back in 1990 (for Asiatic Roe), where I first saw the enormous Elk trophies. I swore then that if I ever returned it would be to try for an Elk.

That is a very neat hunt in an exotic place. There is a lot of adventure and a different cultural experience associated with hunting some place like that.

Great bull.

My goal, and regret, whilst living in Kazakhstan for 2 1/2 years. I just needed to head home whenever I could get away.

Kazakhstan is near the top of my list of elk hunts I'd like to go on.

Few years back I guided a trio of Germans/Austrian who were elk hunting loonies, they had pics and great stories of hunting there.
